Fresh off a last-second win over the Packers, the Falcons try to stretch out their lead in the NFL South on Thursday night in what we’re dubbing “Jameis Winston vs Falcons” and avenge an opening week loss to the Buccaneers.
Falcons vs. Buccaneers Prediction: Atlanta 34, Tampa Bay 28
The Falcons vs. Buccaneers is a big NFC South division game, and Tampa Bay beat Atlanta earlier this season. The Falcons are much better now, yet the Bucs couldn’t stop Raiders’ QB Derek Carr last Sunday.
When looking at Jameis Winston from a fantasy football perspective, he has been erratic – hot or cold. Key Jameis Winston stats include three games of 25-plus points scoring, but four games of 19 or fewer points. The hope in tonight’s game of Jameis Winston vs falcons, he has a bounceback game. Moreso, if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to capture the NFC South division title, he’ll need to be on his A game.
In other words, a repeat performance in the Jameis Winston vs falcons game in NFL Week 1. Key Jameis Winston stats in this Jameis Winston vs. Falcons matchup include him throwing four touchdown passes and outplaying Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan in Tampa Bay’s 31-24 win.
Unlike Jameis Winston stats, Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan recorded his 34th come from behind victory last week. He now leads the NFL with 2,636 passing yards and will come to the game with great confidence tonight. A big part of that is his WR Julio Jones, who is averaging 110.6 receiving yards per game and has 7 TDs in 9 career meetings with the Bucs.
And so in the Jameis Winston vs. Falcons matchup, Ryan and his WRs should light up the suspect Tampa Bay secondary and lead the Falcons to victory at the Ray Jay tonight.
